As members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, we have high standards regarding LDS dating.
LDS youth are counseled to not date until they are at least 16 years old.
The chances for a happy, healthy temple marriage are much greater if you only date other Latter-day Saints who uphold the same standards.
Youth should avoid dating the same person too regularly.
We realize that this may seem a bit strained and awkward – after all, you'll both be operating in "agenda mode." But it's really the only way to get from where you are now to where you want to be.
If at the end of this interview you still feel interested in pursuing the relationship, put your heads together and come up with a specific plan to make that happen.
I'm in my mid-twenties and have developed a friendship with a young woman I met on the internet.
She lives in another state and we've talked quite a bit on the phone since then.
Studies have shown that the longer a boy and girl date one another, the more likely they are to get into trouble.
It is better, my friends, to date a variety of companions until you are ready to marry. When you start dating and throughout your youth, it is best to date in groups or go on double dates.
Because of our high standards, we believe in only dating those who respect and keep the commandments of Jesus Christ.
